This was the scene yesterday in Copenhagen. As you can see the scene is rather agitated with lots of police action, including use of billy clubs. As of this writing, no pictures or video is available of Lord Moncktons account below. Hopefully somebody in the crowd will post some. I wish him well. Ill also be glad when this conference is over. It has shown government at its worst.
Today the gloves came off and the true purpose of the global warming scare became nakedly visible. Hugo Chavez, the Socialist president of Venezuela, blamed global warming on capitalism and received a standing ovation from very nearly all of the delegates, lamentably including those from those of the capitalist nations of the West that are on the far Left and that means too many of them.
Previously Robert Mugabe, dictator of Rhodesia, who had refused to leave office when he had been soundly defeated in a recent election, had also won plaudits at the conference for saying that the West ought to pay him plenty of money in reparation of our supposed climate debt.
Inside the conference center, world leader after world leader got up and postured about the need to Save The Planet, the imperative to do a deal, the necessity to save the small island nations from drowning, etc., etc., etc.
Outside, in the real world, it was snowing, and a foretaste of the Brave New World being cooked up by world leaders in their fantasy-land was already evident. Some 20,000 observers from non-governmental organizations nearly all of them true-believing Green groups funded by taxpayers had been accredited to the conference.
However, without warning the UN had capriciously decided that all but 300 of them were to be excluded from the conference today, and all but 90 would be excluded on the final day.
Of course, this being the inept UN, no one had bothered to notify those of the NGOs that were not true-believers in the UNs camp. So Senator Steve Fielding of Australia and I turned up with a few dozen other delegates, to be left standing in the cold for a couple of hours while the UN laboriously worked out what to do with us.
In the end, they decided to turn us away, which they did with an ill grace and in a bad-tempered manner. As soon as the decision was final, the Danish police moved in. One of them began the now familiar technique of manhandling me, in the same fashion as one of his colleagues had done the previous day.
Once again, conscious that a police helicopter with a high-resolution camera was hovering overhead, I thrust my hands into my pockets in accordance with the St. John Ambulance crowd-control training, looked my assailant in the eye and told him, quietly but firmly, to take his hands off me.
He complied, but then decided to have another go. I told him a second time, and he let go a second time. I turned to go and, after I had turned my back, he gave me a mighty shove that flung me to the ground and knocked me out.
I came to some time later (not sure exactly how long), to find my head being cradled by my friends, some of whom were doing their best to keep the police thugs at bay while the volunteer ambulance-men attended to me.
I was picked up and dusted me off. I could not remember where I had left my telephone, which had been in my hand at the time when I was assaulted. I rather fuzzily asked where it was, and one of the police goons shouted, He alleges he had a mobile phone.
In fact, the phone was in my coat pocket, where my hand had been at the time of the assault. The ambulance crew led me away and laid me down under a blanket for 20 minutes to get warm, plying me with water and keeping me amused with some colorfully colloquial English that they had learned.
I thanked them for their kindness, left them a donation for their splendid service, and rejoined my friends. A very senior police officer then came up and asked if I was all right. Yes, I said, but no thanks to one of his officers, who had pushed me hard from behind when my back was turned and had sent me flying.
The police chief said that none of his officers would have done such a thing. I said that several witnesses had seen the incident, which I intended to report. I said I had hoped to receive an apology but had not received one, and would include that in my report. The policeman went off looking glum, and with good reason.
To assault an accredited representative of a conference your nation is hosting, and to do it while your own police cameramen are filming from above, and to do it without any provocation except my polite, non-threatening request that I should not be manhandled, is not a career-enhancing move, as that police chief is about to discover to his cost.
Nor does this incident, and far too many like it, reflect the slightest credit on Denmark. We must make reasonable allowance for the fact that the unspeakable security service of the UN, which is universally detested by those at this conference, was ordering the Danish police about. The tension between the alien force and the indigenous men on the ground had grown throughout the conference.
However, the Danish police were far too free with their hands when pushing us around, and that is not acceptable in a free society. But then, Europe is no longer a free society. It is, in effect, a tyranny ruled by the unelected Kommissars of the European Union. That is perhaps one reason why police forces throughout Europe, including that in the UK, have become far more brutal than was once acceptable in their treatment of the citizens they are sworn to serve.
It is exactly this species of tyranny that the UN would like to impose upon the entire planet, in the name of saving us from ourselves or, as Ugo Chavez would put it, saving us from Western capitalist democracy.
A few weeks ago, at a major conference in New York, I spoke about this tendency towards tyranny with Dr. Vaclav Klaus, the distinguished economist and doughty fighter for freedom and democracy who is President of the Czech Republic.
While we still have one or two statesmen of his caliber, there is hope for Europe and the world. Unfortunately, he refused to come to Copenhagen, telling me that there was no point, now that the lunatics were firmly in control of the asylum.
However, I asked him whether the draft Copenhagen Treatys proposal for what amounted to a communistic world government reminded him of the Communism under which he and his country had suffered for so long.
He thought for a moment as statesmen always do before answering an unusual question and said, Maybe it is not brutal. But in all other respects, what it proposes is far too close to Communism for comfort.
Today, as I lay in the snow with a cut knee, a bruised back, a banged head, a ruined suit, and a written-off coat, I wondered whether the brutality of the New World Order was moving closer than President Klaus or any of us had realized.
Police in Copenhagen roughed-up Lord Monckton (know for his skepticism about global warming). UN police were reported to be bullies toward to Denmark's police efforts.
Statements by Hugo Chavez and Robert Mugabe made it clear that the real intent of this movement is to destroy or punish Capitalism in the West.
There are no illusions now, it is time to gather the enemies list. We will need it later.
Mugabe was there in person?
And no one killed him?
WTF is wrong with Denmark?
In the name of Christ, what is the problem with Denmark?
It takes a plan to build something, along with hard work.
It takes much less planning to destroy things.
That is what the Left does.
They build nothing, they steal from others, they destroy human will and spirit, then they blame it on someone else.
All Leftists are Liars and thieves.
Enemies of Free Men everywhere.
We are in this battle, like it or not, and it is for keeps.
Yes we are in a battle and yes it is for keeps.
This movement is planned and executed by such Evil cretin as Mugabee.
Like it or not, we are in this war, and it is for keeps.
They have been exposed by ClimateGate, but with the MSM help are persisting in propagating the LIE of the Century.
Those free-loaders just want our money. This has nothing to do with climate change, they come to feed from the trough of Capitalism while at the same time condemning it.
Chavez “...blamed global warming on capitalism”
Lord Moncton is a treasure, a civilized and rational influence that we should persuade not to take the risk of being beaten by UN police. We don’t need martyrs.
Isn’t there some way to provide some security?
The news that is filtering out about this charade is amazing. It is a genuine circus of Leftist Dictators planning our destruction.
The heat must be focused on the Senate to put Obozo in his place, NOW!
All Congressmen who voted for Cap&Trade are either Traitors or simply Too Stupid to Hold Public Office.
Here is the list Gentlemen>
“Updated Congressional Score Card”
Happy Hunting My Friends.
Chavez, Mugabe and Obama. Three tin-pot dictators. Three Marxists.
Lord Monckton writes very well.
I hope this gets sent to Rush, Beck and all the radio guys (and gals).
It is truly amazing to see them unabashedly planning the destruction of the US and then Obozo flies over there and tells them that he is with them! The #$%@&ing stupid people who elected this TRAITOR ought to be all deported to the turd world shitholes that Obozo wants to turn the US into.
can you imagine the outrage by the mainstream media and the left IF the GOP were the ones hiring SEIU, and the GOP were ordering these kind of thuggish acts during a summit?
This freakin world has gone mental- compeltely insane!
There is evidence that the UN was planning all along to lord it over other coutnries by dictating how much money they have to give other naitons- secret meetings were held way way back even before this copenhagen came about- and these CRIMINALS will stop at nothign to force their one world government on everyone- even if it means using violence to shut the mouths of those who are simply trying to brign reason and logic to hte debates-
I don’t know Lord Monckton, but my father told me about Tommy in Europe during WWII. Our solders found their accent and speech humorous, but universally concluded that “Tommy will Fight.”
We are already in this WAR and it is For Keeps. It is time to thrash the Lefties and pursue them to the Gates of Hell if necessary.
Hence, they only strong armed him, instead of shot him dead.
This isn't a disagreement among people of good will.
This is a fight to the death between reasoned freedom and superstitious tyranny.
Dear Lord, grant me the ammo to make a difference...
It is Lord Moncton’s account, but I suspect this was rewritten for the Blog.
